Caricature super villain and controversial pharmaceutical CEO, Martin Shkreli, has reportedly upped his bid for Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo album. After just two days ago offering Yeezy $10 million USD to not release the album officially, it has been revealed via HipHopDX that Shkreli is to increase the offer to a staggering $15 million USD. “This figure is materially above any realistic album sales forecast given to me by third-party experts,” explained Shkreli. “As a respected and noted music collector, I request that you sell me this album not to deprive your fans of the music, but to remind the world that music is a precious and important part of our lives.” Check out the full letter here, and hear Shkreli defend himself here.
